BOSTON — The Coast Guard medically evacuated a 46-year-old man from a New Bedford, Mass. fishing vessel 98 miles east of Cape Cod, Mass., Monday. **NOTE: There is no audio on this.** Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector Southeastern New England Command Center received a call at 3 a.m., Monday from the 98-foot fishing vessel Osprey requesting assistance for the crewman who suffered a facial injury after being hit with the vessel's gear. A Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod MH-60T Jayhawk helicopter crew hoisted the man from the Osprey and transported him to Boston Logan International Airport where they were met by an ambulance. The ambulance took him to Boston Medical Center. "Originally it wasn't recommended to medevac the crewman because his injuries didn't seem to be severe, said Petty Officer 1st Class Jacob Page, the operations unit controller for the 1st Coast Guard District. "However, when the man's condition began to deteriorate, we decided it would be best to get him to advanced medical care for treatment."
